Denpasar Bali – The most anticipated beach run event of the year is back, this time with an exciting new route and an exciting new concept. Now with a “Fun Run” theme and minus the use of a timing chip, the new Bali Beach Run 2016 will ensure that everyone comes out a winner!
Taking place on 11 December 2016, runners will leave the starting line at Petitenget Beach at 6:00am and run alongside the beach’s breathtaking panorama before heading into Seminyak Beach. Depending on the category – 10km, 5km or 2.5km, the route will take you from the starting line at Petitenget Beach along some of the most iconic establishments along Seminyak Beach. For those running in the 10km category, you’ll continue on to Double Six Beach, Padma Beach, Legian Beach and Kuta Beach before turning back in front of The Hard Rock Hotel towards the finish line at Petitenget Beach.
The 5km Fun Run and the 2.5km Family Run also begin and end on Petitenget Beach. The runners for the 5km Fun Run would turn back in front of The Lanai Restaurant in the Double Six Beach, and the 2.5km Family Run would turn back in front of Luna Villa on Seminyak Beach towards the finish line at Petitenget Beach.

Bali Beach Run, Indonesia’s first and largest annual beach run event is an evolution in itself. From the simple running sport taking place on a beach, Bali Beach Run has revolutionized the entire concept – creating a unique, one-of-a-kind, and a highly anticipated world-renowned running event that combines sports with recreation, giving birth to a community-based social and sporting event that not only triggers the competitive spirit, but also gives back and empowers the local communities it is involved in.
First introduced in November 2013 by Mr. Hendra Lapusa, President and Founder of Bali Beach Run and PT. Trijaya Dewata, the inaugural event in 2013 saw more than 1,500 runners taking part. A unique combination of sports and holiday, it has since become a highly anticipated affair among local and international runners alike.
